Spring

Oh, the joys of being in North Carolina in the springtime:



Ohhhh.



Ahhhh.




Mmmm.




Oh, yeah. Silver cars aren't supposed to be yellow.

Ah-ahh-choo!

What's springing up in your neck of the woods?

I'm afraid Spring is taking it's time getting here in northern Nevada. I woke up to a couple of inches of snow on the ground this morning. sigh! It looks beautiful around your house except for the pollen ha! Blessings.

It is in full force here in the South. Pollen just cakes the walkways on campus at school. It's pretty gross. However, the flowers are very pretty. Beautiful pictures! :)

Every time we get a hint of spring, it's back to cold rain :( but hey that's Oregon. Our summers are incredible.

Your photos are beautiful.

Tree pollen is high right now and my daughter is suffering because of it. I'm already taking allergy drops to help with my issues! But spring time is still a beautiful time of year :) Hope you enjoyed your Easter.

Great post! I took my daughter to the park in Cary this morning, and we "cleaned" all of the pollen off of the slides by being the first to slide down!! Ah choo!

We went home to Rocky Mount for the weekend & my white car quickly became a lovely shade of pale yellow too. Springtime is great isn't it?

I'm thinking about purchasing a gas mask for all of this pollen! Do you think it will work? ;)

I'm so glad that the pollen held off until today. Yellow Easter pictures are not very becoming!

I looked out this morning and pollen was blowing every where. I hurried to close my windows. It is so hot here today, I had to turn on the air in the house. Nothing could be finer than to be in Carolina!!! Carla

spring looks beautiful in your neck of the woods! my green trees are greening up some more, and i can smell the orange blossoms like crazy. ahh... i love them!

Carmen said...

I *love* when all of the spring flowers start popping everywhere. I love spring! It's such a fresh start.

Melanie said...

I do love spring but it does bring the pollen. When we lived in Georgia, we all had allergies during the spring and fall.

The flowers make up for it though:)

Holly said...

We get the pollen-covered cars too, but we're not quite to that point yet. We are very blessed that none of us have allergies!

richella--it all looks so lovely! we have at "late" spring in colorado and haven't seen much green or budding yet...but we have had snow! :0)

Vonda said...

Beautiful! Here in Michigan...we long for spring...it always comes, just a little later than the rest of the country. I do have a couple of daffodils!

My daughter came in from outside yesterday and told me that our deck was all dusty. I went outside and the entire deck was yellow with pollen.

We just moved from Arizona, so that was a first for us!!

Southern Gal said...

I posted something similar today. It was 97 degrees here yesterday!! But the flowers are beautiful.
